Windows XP ShutDown problems

I usually set my downloads up before going to bed and use Chrono ShutDown to shut down my PC without my presense but sometimes the PC hangs and the 'saving settings' screen and when I wake up i find my PC was on for no reason for like 5 hours.

Why does it hang at that screen? It does that sometimes normally and this is the 4th time I have installed WinXP:mad:

Hi, I believe this is dealt with in the M/S Knowledge base. To the effect that the shutdown timer is too short and there is not enough time to "save settings", something like that . Check it out.
A registry change I believe.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
